CRANBROOK.
The
Railway      Centre  of    Southeast
Kootenny.
The shrewd mining man, the hustling merchant, or the experienced
railway builder, coming to size up
the situation in Southeast Kootenay
would naturally usk himself, where
is the point so centrally situated
that from it I can reach all, or
the greater portion of the great
mining regions in the surrounding
mountains, the immense ureas of
the Kootenay valley, in fact the entire business portion of the district.
Looking around for a spot so favored hy nature, lie would unhesitatingly say to liimse'.f on seeing
Crnnbrook, "here is the ideal spot
for which I have been searching.
He would probably, say also, this
ia the centre of a vast Empire. At!
portions of this immense mining,
lumbering and agricultural region is
directly tributary to tile City of
Cranbrnnk. He would also say thut
this City is the railway centre of
this vast territory, that all railways now under construction, or to
ho constructed in the future, must
of necessity, either have its initial
point, or. its terminal at Oranbrook.
There is no wisdom or utility in recriminations or regrets, tlie situation with its advantages and- disadvantages is before us; tlie question
is "how can we best advance, the interests of the entire district, as well
as benefit nur nwn City of Cran
brook." And in pushing this pro
ject of development to City nnd dis
trict, we must look well into the
future, for our interests nre the
best interoata nf the entire district,
we must stand shoulder to shoulder,
showing our faith in the natural ad
vantages of our beautiful city by
working tirelessly for its advancement. Ry showing this faith nn nil
occasions, nnd hy helping ourselves
we shall sooner nr later get others
tn see these things in their proper
light, assured thut under no circumstances can liny railway building in

Having     forced the     Ontario   and
Quebec fight on    Dominion lines, the
Ministers     now see   how the     thing
works out on the basis of the provincial vote,    lt means with the same
vote a net loss of more than half of
the Ontario seats which the Oovern-
iiloht    now holds in the     Commons.
That means a   Conservative majority
of 50 in the     Ontario representution
at Ottawa,    lt betokens the     defeat
of the three     Ontario Ministers who
sit in the Commons.    Tbe Conservu-
es, seem tu have carried every tin
tarlo city,      most of them by enormous majorities.   They     have swept
the     whole of   New Ontario.     They

A third is doubtful, with an apparent Government majority of seven.

We hope, and our hopes are based

The Kootenay Central railway
when completed, will open up a magnificent nrable stretch of country
through the Columbia and Kootenay
valleys, a country capable of supporting thousands of farmers ami
fruit growers, for the soil is adaptable to fruit culture, apples aud all
the hardy fruits, as well as berries
of every kind can be raised.

Cranbrook today has a population
of about 3,31)0 people, and is growing rapidly, Our citizens are progressive, and there is a feeling that
speaks for the city operating its
public utilities, such as water-works,
electric light and telephones, now
owned  hy  private corporations.

• *     9    •
The Kootenay valley is an agricultural district with large areas of
arable land of greut fertility, uud
capable of producing more than is
required by its present population.
The mining and lumbering industries has so completely occupied the
attention of the inhabitants of the
district, that but little attention
has been paid to farming. Southeast Kootenuy though rich in minerals, coal, oil nnd timber, has sutli-
clent agricultural lands to feed its
own inhabitants and supply the various mining and lumbering camps of
the district, and considerable for
outside consumption.
• •   •
The Prospector has frequently
made mention of Cranbrook ns a
summer resort, and it is a pleasure
to refer to this. In all Southeast
Kootenay there is no place which
offers the same attractions. The
mountains are at our doors, nnd the
mountain climber can indulge in his
dangerous hut favorite pastime. The
drives in this vicinity cannot be excelled. The hunter can find game in
abundance, and the disciples of
Isaac Walton can satisfy their cravings for sport by whipping the mountain streams, and getting a full basket. It is a veritable sportsman's
paradise, and will so be recognized
in a few years.

and temperate climate, located in southern B.C. west of the Rockies.
Produces abundant crops of Fruit, Grain, Vegetables and Hay.
The best markets in the North-west.
Broad valleys of rich prairie soil, large bodies of excellent timber, mountains of
mineral ore still untouched, abundantly watered by mountain streams and springs.
A new section of the country that has never had a land boom, and where you
can still get a cheap home and the very best soil. One of the largest valleys of
level land in B.C. embracing: the Tobacco Plains Country, the St. Maries Prairie,
the Wasa Fruit District and summer resort, and the Baynes Lake Fruit District.
A postal stating what kind of land you want, will bring full description, maps,
and reliable information regarding climate, soil, and prices of land.

there are really no ill effects.
The grain is as healthy looking
as could be desired and there is
no sign of yellow. Beyond,
therefore, inconveniences arising
from to great lenglh of straw.
the crop to date has so far maintained its record of hesl possible
condition. If ever percentage
classification comes into use in
Ihe prairie west, ihe first iwo

standard or one hundred points
by which other seasons can bej
measured. Normal conditions
are only needed lo secure a|

WASA    FRUIT  LANDS.
A Large Tract of Lund Located Near
Hnnson's Luke.—A Denatiful Summer Hesort.
A large tract of land, comprising
1.200 acres has been laid out in fruit
farms of five acres, just north of
Hanson's Lake, near the town of
Wasa.
About 800 acres is level table land
lying about 15 feet above Hanson's
Lake. The part along the shore of
the luke is covered with scattered
pine and fir timber, while the balance is prairie; the soil on this portion of the tract is a dark loam
slightly mixed with gravel in places,
the subsoil being clny, making an
excellent formation for the production of all kinds of frait and other
crops. This land is sub-Irrigated
from the Kootenay river.
' An irrigation ditch two miles in
length Is under construction, and
water will be taken from Lewis creek
The capacity of tbe ditch is estimated at one thousand inches.
The climate in this section of the
country is mild and pleasant, and
such that all crops common to the
state ot Washington     do exceedingly
j well. Violent storms are unknown
here and the temperature is quite
even. The winters are short and
the thermometer seldom reaches zero
weather. The summers are quite
warm, but the nights nre always
cool and refreshing. The annual
precipitation is from 18 to 84 Inches,
the greater part of which falls In the
spring and early summer.
The autumn ls warm ami dry, and
summer frosts ure unknown. Tbe
snowfall light. Heavy winds and
hail never visit this valley. The
altitude is about 2,400 feet above
sea level.
All kinds of small grain, hay, Including timothy, clover, alfalfa,
brume grass and red-top, also vegetables,     Including tomatoes, cucum-
: tiers, beans, peas, sweet corn, cabbage, ote, are   raised In abundance
Apples, pears, cherries, prunes, apricots, berries of all kinds do exceedingly well.
The village of Wasa, adjoins this
tract of land on the south end of
Hanson's Luke, and is a populur
resort for tbe people of tbe district.
Beautiful scenery, good boating anil
fishing are Borne of the attractions.
The Kootenay     Central     Railway
ight of    way crosses    the northern
urtion of these fruit lands.

The portion on ttie South side of

llritish Columbia Has The Lumber
And Will Control Market Condi
tions ln The Future.
Like every other industry the lumber trade haa been seriously affected
by the late stringency of the money
market, now, happily, becoming n
mutter of black and puiaful history.
Crunbrook, owing to its inuny resources, has come through the panic
practically unscathed, though tlie
falling oil in the puy rolls of tbe
mills naturally told its inevitable
tale of reduced receipts till round.
Yet, in the crash of the greatest
finunciul convulsion of modern times,
there were those with the true seeing
eye who have looked beyond tbe
present, and basing their action ou
well established facts, have pushed
in here from across the International
Boundary to acquire, if they can, at
panic prices what is uot to be bud
at almost any price ia tbe States.
The fucta are two. First, the timber in tbe United States is rapidly
being exhausted; and second, we,
hore in British Columbia, possess
what the citizens of the sister republic have squandered and wasted
in a riot of, possibly, questiiinntile
advancement and exploitation of
their national resources.
The present population ol the
States is about eighty millions and
the lumber consumption 500 feet,
board measurement, per capita per
year. In fifty years it is considered
that the population will have increased to at least two hundred millions. Dealing directly with this
point, Jnmes J. Hill snld the other
duy at the great meeting convened
by President Roosevelt to consider
the growing necessity of conserving
the resources of the country, that the
marketable timber was being cut nt
four times the rate of the natural
growth or renewal; that the timber
of the eastern States was exhausted;
that the South had reached its maximum output and was beginning to
recede; that the supply of some varieties was now exhausted; and that
the end of the century would see the
extinction of all the States forest
wealth. It is no wonder, then, that
we are now sure that the import
duty on lumber going into the
States from British Columbia will
Boon be remitted, or to find the
cruisers of the biggest lumber concerns in America, like those of the
Weyerheusers and others, on every
creek in Bast Kootenay examining
timber with a view to having it acquired by their employers. Those
big operators have brains enough tu
see tbut we have an immense source
of wealth in one of the prime essen
tials of modern civilization, and
seek to come in, not to lose money,
but to secure the raw materials for
the immeuse profits of the future
markets.
One hears no bowlings of calamity
and dismay from thoae most astute
aud far-seeing men except when they
use a rotten argument to drag down
the price of a staple article—stand
ing timber— to which we of British
Columbia ought to hung on while
there is a shot ln the locker. We
can deliver the goods. Let the
other fellow pay for it.
It ia admitted that never In tho
history of the North WeBt was there
a promise of a more beautiful harvest. Only let 'that promise be
realized and tbe stability of tiniin
clal conditions be further guaranteed
by the defeat of the wretched Laurier government at the next Doiiiln
Ion general elections ami tho return
ot the Republican administration to
power ln the States, aad we mny
look with all possible and reusonu
ble confidence to a return of the
same conditions of the lumber husi
ness us existed ln the early part uf
last year.
The worst has happened, und
thank God, lu done with. The
clouds are breaking, and ln a little
time we will find the realisation of
that hope which nerves us to keep
what we have and to struggle for
all that we muy acquire lu fair play
and honesty.

The apple Is the fruit of "Pyrns
Mains," belonging to the sub order
"I'omuceae", ol the natural order
Itosaceae. It is one of the most
widely cultivated nnd hest known
aad appreciated of fruits belonging
to temperate climates. The apple
tree as cultivated Is a moderate
Slued tree with spreading branches,
ovnte, acutely serrated or crenated
leaves, and Mowers la corymbs.
The fruit Is too well known to ueed
my description of its extemul characteristics. I'he apple Is successfully cultivated In the Cranbrook district, its blossoms are susrepluble
of Injury from frost. It, comes Into
Bower much later than pouches or
apricots, and so avoids the night
frost which would be fatal to Its
fruit bearing. The best fruit being
produced iu hot summer cllninto such
us Is found In the Kootenays, and
more especially In tliu valleys of the
Kootenay river.
The most esteemed ol all apples Is
the American Newton I'lpln, it glob
ular Juicy, eweet nnd highly aromatic fruit; other varieties of note are
the William's Favorite, Astrakhans,
flravenstelns, and for winter use the
Baldwin, King, Rpltzenherg and
Itiubury Itussett.
These varieties are ull grown sue
cesslully in the Kootenny valley, and
In every portion of the Cranhrook
district. Apple trees plunteil on

fruit since the enrly sixties. THE PROSPECTOR, OKANBROOK, B.C., JUNE 20, inns

Description of The District,—A Min
iug And Agricultural Section that
Needs Railway Transportation
East Kootenay tonus the south
eastern portion of British Columbln
and is lamed for the immense eoal
measures   through   which     lhe   Crow's
Nest railway runs for many miles
both in Alberta ami British Colum
but.   The   coal   mines are estimated
Iti he capable of yielding 10,000,000
tons of coal a year for 7,mill years.
Several large mi mm' companies are
developing properties, and those tlm,t
have reached tho producing stage
an- tinning out over 1,000,000 tons
annually.
There    arc   also    extensive   deposits
of petroleum   In this section   of tho
province, but have not as yet reach
ed   the commercial  stage.
Euterlng the province by tho Crown

the Rocky Mountains through the

tions vary somewhat with locality,
especially in a mountainous country,
but speaking Rent rally ol this dis
11let there is no fulrer valley in
Hi it tsh Columbln, and none bettor
fitted for general farming, fruit
growing, dauynii; ami cattle raising.
From the Selkirk range on the
west. to the Rooky mountains on
the east, the country is more or less
suited to agriculture; large portions
of it being exceedingly fertile, while
the rest can be made equally rich by
irrigation. Much  of    the    land  is
open and rolling, a beautiful parklike region, ideal for stock raising,
a profitable industry, as there is a
good home market for horses, cattle,
sheep and hogs. Going north from
the Crow's Nest railway, the Columbia valley is entered at Canal Flat.
The scenic beauties and fertility of
this magnificent valley baffles description. Dominated on the east by
the Rockies, on the west by the Selkirk range of mountains, the diversity and grandeur of scene from
every point of view is fairly bewildering. The only present means of
transportation is by stage from
''ranbrook, via Fort Steele to Wilmer and Windermere, and by steamer from Windermere to Golden, on
the main line of the Canadian Pacific railway. But t\ railway will
shortly traverse these beautiful valleys from north to south. The advent of this road will be followed by
an inrush of settlers, and the development of the mineral and timher
resources;     for the   country is well

Try Preventics, At My Risk
With Book on Colds.
Jusl to prove merit--to show you how
quickly Preventics can and will check colds
or lhe Grippe—I will mail you free on
request these sample? and my book. Simply
address—Dr. .Slump. Racine, Wis.
Preventics arc thoroughly harmless little
Candy Cold Cure tablets. No Quinine, no
laxative, nothing sickening whatever.
To check early Colds or Grippe with "Pre-
ventics" means sure defeat for Pneumonia.
To slop a cold with Preventics is surely
safer than to let it run and he obliged to
cure il afterward. Preventics will however
reach a deeply seated cold. But taken
early—at the sneeze stage—they break or
head off these early colds. That is surely
better—that is why they are named "Preventics." Promptness however is all-important. Promptness in the use of Preventics may save half your usual sickness.
Peverishntss, night nr day. with child or

POLITICAL ITBMB OP INTEREST.
R. T. Lowry, of the Greenwood
Ledge, suys;—""The refusal ot Mr.
Ileum, to explain why he sold The
News iu the face of un upprouching
election, lost him the Liberal nomination for Kootenay. He considered
that he hud no business to parade
his private affairs before even a Grit
caucus. Rumor suys thut six mouths
ago Dcune gave Billy McMorrls au
option to purchase the paper, never
dreaming thut it would be tuken up.
Much to his surprise the sale went
through fur $30,000, the new owners
paying Jf-10,000 cash und assuming
tbe mortgage for $.0,000. The News
also absorbed the plant belonging to
Oarley und the Canadian office and
hthve them in junk storage. Thus
Dcune gets out of the paper business
with his life und u loss of six years'
time, All the work he has done for
the Grits is forgotten in a minute
und he is bunded the frozen heart
when bis party could at least have
shown their gratitude by giving him
the unanimous nomination for Kootenuy. Verily, for ways that are icy
and tricks thnt are snaky politics do
prevail.
The Liberal party of Nelson wus
split at the recent convention. Dr.
Arthur und the church people wanted
G. O. Buchanan for a sacrifice, but
the other wing clamored for Deane.
Between the walls of a divided house
Smith Curtis raided the convention,
lust Thursday und captured the nomination, although he no doubt would
much rather that Deune hud been
chosen in his pluee. There wus a
lively time at the convention, but no
lives were lost, although the ozone
suffered from heavy oracular ejuclu-
tions, nnd it looked at one time a
safe bet that the police and ambulance corps would he in requisition.
Owing to fear prevailing amongst
the Grits the press wus excluded,
making it ditlicult to obtain any but
fragmentary evidence of the terrible
affair. If you want an explosive
episode just mix a little religion
with politics und serve hot. When
Twogood of Sandon touched up
Buchanan upon his deep interest in
the Lord's Day Alliance persecution
the wur broke out, und it wns with
greut difficulty that R. W. Grigor of
Rossland could be restrained from
strewing his feelings all over the
hull. However, a hypnotic look
from J. A. Maedonald finally mude
him let go, and sweet pence again
drew its breath. Smith Curtis is
receiving condolences from his Tory
friends, to which he turns u deaf ear.
Ledge Greenwood.
The Prospector, hns reason to believe thut Buchanan, Deane and a
large portion of the delegates at the
Nelson convention were "jobbed" in
tbe selection of u candidate to wear
the toga of Kootenay Bill. The
general report is thirt Smith Curtis
has money. Thut he can raise a
Inrge campaign fund, of which he
he will let go of in a most Liberal
manner. It is also said thut the
nomination wus high priced, but
that the candidate came through
with the goods. It is no wonder
thut the press wns excluded, they
might hnve caught on, and the
efforts of the Grit friends of Smith
Curtis exposed to the party in
Kootenay.
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
British Columbia bids fair to rivul
Ontario in population and weulth.
Its position, between the wheat
fields and ranching lunds of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, on
oue side, und the Pacific oeeun on
the other, is oue of extraordinary
advantage. So fur only its southern fringe hus felt the impulse of
railway construction. But it will
not be long before there are two
more railways cross the province
further uortb, and also brunches und
feeders running north and south.
Then we muy look out for the development of mines, timber und agricultural lands of great    value.
British Columbia Ih also the province that will receive the first advantage from the growth of the Pacific und Oriental trade. The coast
cities of the United States ure looking forward with eugerness to the
growth of Asiatic trnde, and there Is
no reason why a lurge share should
not. full to the coast cities of llritish (■olumbla. This will mean pros
perity for the province und prosper!
ty for all Cunadu.

CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS h»ve revolutionfced rator making-they are TEMPERED BY ELECTRICITY, which is
OUR OWN EXCLUSIVE SECRET PROCESS -the ttecl  used in their manufacture is of  the finest English and
Swedish make.   This wonderful discovery is the result of years of experiment and study, and at last there has been
produced a razor that will shave any beard, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH.
ELECTRIC TEMPERING addi CARBON to the steel; whereas tempering by fire, (the only other method known for
centuries) DESTROYS the CARBON which is the life of steel.   All other makes of razors must be HON EO   AND  GROUND
often, as their blades will NOT hold an edge any length of time.  CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS do not require HONING
or GRINDING during a lifetime in private use; they are all tempered  alike, every  part of their blades being  subjected to
the same AMPERES OF ELECTRICITY.  CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS are ground FIVE times by the HAMBURG
METHOD, the most expensive grinding known.
YOUR DEALER will deliver to rou one of these CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS on 30 days' trial, without
obligation on your part to purchase—take advantage of this opportunity. Break away from the barber habit! You will save
$50.00 annually.
Call on our representatives in your town, and request a copy of "Hints On Shaving"—This booklet illustrates the
correct razor position for shaving every part of the face (ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN FROM LIFE) -it also tells
you HOW TO STROP A RAZOR PROPERLY; should our dealer be out of them, drop us a card, and we will send you
one hy return mail.
